What people are saying about Highlands of Iceland

Really great tour! Very organized and efficient, there are ski suits, raincoats and crampons for everyone. Kiddi drove the 8-wheeled super vehicle and did a great job! Daudd was our guide, very prepared and nice, he spoke English very well and above all he was very kind because he was available to take souvenir photos in various points of the ice tunnel. The tour is truly a unique and unforgettable experience then if you are lucky enough to find Daudd as a guide it will be truly a show !!!

It has been great!! We were with 4 children and they loved it! The only but…a shame I didn't understand half of the explanation since they only spoke in English, and it was all very interesting (the children didn't understand anything…a shame). In our group half were Spanish, they could create groups by language. Thank you! * They give you raincoats, boots and crampons; the vehicle that goes through the glacier, dizzy a little...

Amazing trip from start to finish. Loved the snow bus trip up the glacier to the ice cave entrance. Guide excellent with lots of information and banter. Ice cave stunning with so much to take on. Trip back down fun too. Thoroughly recommend this tour to everyone

It was really beautiful and special to walk under a 45 meter layer of ice. The other two stops of the tour at the hot springs and waterfalls are also very beautiful. Recommended!

good organization, all services on time, very helpful, informative and kind staff during the whole tour, exciting visit to the tunnel
